Football club star Omar Marmoush (22) has as many holes in his socks as his club has points in the account…
The striker, who was on loan from Wolfsburg until the summer, played against Hoffenheim (3-1) with eight holes in his socks on Saturday. But this is not because of moths – it is his exoticism.
Marmoush cuts the fabric several times in order to make more room for the legs. It’s not just plugs from VfB outfitter Jako. Already at St. Pauli (pre-season supplier: Under Armor) and Wolfsburg (Nike) they punched the stuff in some appearances.
Christoph Romer from Jako zu BILD: “Why a player cuts socks is not really clear. His calf is not so tight that there is a lot of pressure on the muscles. In addition, we offer not only socks of different lengths, but also different calf sizes for professionals. Maybe the player just wants to create a brand: be the first to play with the perforated socks.”
But Rohmer also has to keep in mind: “It’s a gray area in terms of playwear guidelines, slots change appearance.”
Marmoush Marut dies!
One thing is for sure: it’s not only noticeable in the game because of the air vents. But through dribbling, goal strength and speed.
Coach Pellegrino Matarazzo: “Omar is on the right track. But he will need more time to absorb the operations in our company and fully understand the idea of our game.”
The mighty marsh should get better – that would kick VfB fans out of their socks…
